don't play any role, romney can talk -- people leave. of course, they do. you don't expect a bunch of romney people to leave and start a gingrich super pac. the point is that i've been out of contact with the campaign. if we take it from there, let's go on and look more at a couple of key points. the first, the real money is not in (c)(4)'s. there figures to october 6 show that super pacs spend about twice as much as c-4 groups. that's not really what the big money is. >> is not just the stuff that is reported to the federal election commission. will have to go to that in a minute.

[laughter] and to keep that metaphor going, the president looks to me like the team that was vastly overconfident that didn't fear or respect his opponent and didn't take it terribly seriously and conversely the romney eyes off with somebody i hadn't seen in a long time. it was the romney i saw when he was running for the u.s. senate in massachusetts back in 1994, kind of a pragmatic problem solver, nonideological. i would have put them at the 35-40-yard line but i think he was for the first time in his whole campaign he was being who he was as opposed to pretending to be somebody that he wasn't. >> i think o

candidates and evaluating the candidates both presidential candidates -- lee 11 talked-about the fact that barack obama has a more positive favorable rating than mitt romney, both of them are pretty divided when we look at people's impressions of both candidates they are divided about these candidates and part of that is that they don't see, they don't see everything they want to see in any one candidate so it is not surprising that the economy and jobs is at the top but people like thinking about these other values, and other issues as they are making their choice but having to make the choice between what they are being offered. >> there is a similar methodology the campaign pollsters use as the public pollsters' use. the goals are very different. we are trying to identify whether attitudes people might share, campaign polls are about targeting and trying to influence public opinion because they want to win. sometimes the best strategic advice may be to drive of your opponent's negatives. they all do this. we see it in these ads which will push over $1 billion. a very different sort of d
